According to PEOPLE, Sparks gave her grand post-baby debut at the premiere of her new movie Show Dogs. The entertainment outlet reports that the American Idol alum had a scary moment during the all-natural water birth that was swiftly taken care of by her mid-wife.
“I went to a birth center,” Sparks told PEOPLE on Saturday (May 5) at the premiere. “It’s actually right across from Cedars Sinai here in L.A., so just in case anything happened, if there’s complications that arise, they actually would escort us over to the hospital.”
She added that, fortunately, her mid-wife was close by “because the umbilical cord was wrapped around [the baby’s] neck twice.” Sparks further said that she didn't initially see the cord because of how she was positioned. Her husband was confused by seeing it, too. “I didn’t see it because I was facing the other way,” Sparks explained. Isaiah “was just like, ‘I don’t know what to do.’ He said it almost looked like a scarf — it was wrapped around his neck and bod.”
Luckily, the mid-life came to the rescue before anything got worse. She “got [the umbilical cord] off really quickly.” Sparks added about the love that she now feels for her new bundle of joy, since welcoming him into the world: “It was just this incredibly miraculous, beautiful moment that I don’t know could ever be duplicated or replicated. Like you see it in movies, how emotional people get, but until you are actually sitting there it’s beyond anything I’ve ever felt in my life. Ahhh, I’m getting chills just thinking about it.”
